Rural Development & Measure 49

NW Engineers' planning professionals work with public agencies and private sector clients to address complex issues of rural development, Measure 49 applications and permit approvals. Measure 49 allows claimants to establish a specific, but limited, number of home sites. This home site approval is provided as a form of compensation for land use regulations imposed after owners acquired their properties.

NW Engineers assists with the planning and engineering land use application including coordination with other consultants, such as surveyor, environmental, geotech and attorney. We also assist with rural application for Agricultural Dwellings, Forest Dwellings, Non-Farm and other applications including partitions and special use permits.
